Milledgeville Police Maj. John Davis said the latest shootings happened Friday night, when two vehicles were struck; and Sunday night, when several bullet holes riddled a home. No one was hurt in those cases.

WMAZ-TV reports that two people were injured in the earlier shootings.

No arrests directly related to any of the shootings have been reported.
